Through study results of a particular enzyme of unknown function, called Tm0936, that is found in a bacterium that lives in thermal vents in the Mediterranean Ocean, UCSF School of Pharmacy faculty member Brian Shoichet, PhD and colleagues are shedding light on how to ultimately better predict the actions of enzymes involved in the discovery and development of drugs.
Learn more about Shoichet's work in Science Café, a UCSF weekly column highlighting the culture, conduct, and community of science.
